EPT London: Lights, cameras, action...

Day three of the EPT means the introduction of a television table. One group of eight will today have every move scrutinised by a swarm of cameras, serried ranks of supporters, an army of technicians and, eventually, millions in the comfort of their own homes (in edited form, at least.)

While for some that's a daunting proposition, others relish their time under studio lights. And around the first television table of this year's London EPT, there are significantly more of the latter category than the former. Take a look at today's first feature table.



Seat 1 - Daniel Mangas - Spain
Seat 2 - Roland de Wolfe - England
Seat 3 - Fuat Can - Sweden
Seat 4 - Katja Svendsen - Norway - PokerStars qualifier
Seat 5 - Joseph Mouawad - Lebanon - PokerStars qualifier
Seat 6 - Anthony Lellouche - France
Seat 7 - Chris Moneymaker - USA - Team PokerStars pro
Seat 8 - Pascal Perrault - France

At a quick count, that's two EPT titles and one WPT crown, alongside a WSOP main event winner.

Tough table.
